  1. I heard than one when I was at school, I left school in 1963.
  2. Hi Andy Where are you, where do you fish?
  3. Yorkshire holds its breath as main shipping route of flat caps, whippets and ale is blocked. Ernie Slatherswaite, Master of the vessel told us 'One minute we were fine then a small gust of wind took us. Yorkshire is set to lose upwards of £3.67 a day until the carnage is cleared, which according to Our Uncle Eric in the pub, could take weeks.
  4. Simple answer = No and I'm not going to. They'll never be able to enforce it for amatuer boaters, it's aimed at Mobile Phone networks.
  5. I've just tried the calculator, VHF radio Separation Distance = 1.6m Radar Separation Distance = 6.69m (a bit tricky on my 5m boat)
  6. I thought it would be ok as it's the same subject. Oh well, I shall know in the future.
  7. Yes, not as many as my present boat !!!!🤣
  8. I take it, it's the 640 that was second on the left just inside the gates at Cobbs, I kept looking at that but couldn't get "executive" approval.
  9. This could discourage some people from having a VHF on their boat and to rely on a mobile phone instead, resulting in a reduction in safety.
  10. I only take friends, not members of the general public.
  11. Using their calculator. 25w at 156kHz, the safe distance is 1.6 metres away from members of the general public. So no problem.

  13. I've spliced my rope to the chain, goes through the Alderney ring easier
  14. Sorry accidentally posted twice but can’t delete a post, so just deleted the picture
  15. Spring is just around the corner
  16. It's a bit strange, being aware of it. They put drops in to stop you blinking and make it blurred. The eyelid was tapped to keep it open. You lay there and stare at a light. Didn't really feel anything, took about 45 minutes. Went back 3 weeks later to have the other one done. Mine were done through BUPA as I paid in while I worked. I also paid extra to have the better lenses.
